The Children’s Agenda

Pro-child policy experts, advocates and coalitions across Oregon have come together to provide a road map to make Oregon the best place to be a kid. Together, we share a common goal to increase the health, economic security and education of our children.

The Children’s Agenda is a cumulative look at the best thinking on children’s issues in Oregon from pro-child advocacy organizations and coalitions.  Participants in the Children’s Agenda contribute their policy recommendations and offer their endorsement to other policy proposals in the Agenda.  While no single group supports all of the priorities in the Agenda, we are United for Kids and remain committed to working together to achieve a clear and united voice for Oregon’s children.
